A flint judge is not allowing misdemeanor charges against former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder to be dismissed concerning the Flint water scandal.
Lawyers for Snyder plan to appeal and say the indictment was supposed to be returned to Ingham County and Genesee County. However, Judge William Crawford II says prosecutors have options about where to pursue a case.
Snyder is charged with two counts of willful neglect of duty in Flint. The first charge alleges that he failed to properly supervise his employees, and the second charge alleges that he failed to declare a State of Emergency for the city as required by law.
He faces up to a $1000 fine or 30 days in jail if convicted of either charge.
